Has anyone received their acceptance letter from WPI for the Dec 20, 2012 Early Action Round 1 decision?

    Son received his today. We live in New Jersey. No merit information yet...others have indicated that merit letters come in the next 2 weeks following the acceptance letters.
    Good Luck!

    Son received his merit award today. Barely puts a dent in their total cost of $56K per year. Doubt he will be attending.

    Congrats to you and your D rizado! I am sure she will have many wonderful choices.
  • rizadorizado Posts: 60Registered User Junior Member
    Same to you and yours, Krug! What an adventure....

    My D received her package on Dec 19th in the mail with a $14k per year presidential scholarship and then on Dec 24th, she received another letter giver her additional scholarships totaling 30k a year. WPI is back in the running!

    still no merit here. 800/800/780 sat IIs 800/800 . :(
    Rizado and krug: will they stack the national merit finalist scholarship on top of what your child has already received?
  • krugkrug Posts: 360Registered User Member
    I am not positive but I think that rizado looked into it and concluded that WPI doesn't stack merit scholarships.

    I am surprised that you did not get a scholarship. Perhaps, you are in the running for the full tuition and we are out of it since we got our award (hopefully not). With your stats, I am sure that you will have good choices.
  • PA-CPA-C Posts: 960Registered User Member
    perhaps but it could be because i have a son and you both had daughters- they prob are trying to recruit women to engineering.

    PA-C - I think he will get something.

    You can see in section H of the Common Data Set that most students who do not get financial aid, still get a merit scholarship.

    If my math is correct, last September, 244 of the 275 in the entering class who did not get financial aid did get merit scholarships:

    Good luck!

    thanks dadinator for the info!
    And I want to say congrats to the Ds of Rizado and Krug! i hope i didnt come off sounding bitter towards the students who did get awards as that was not my intention!
  • krugkrug Posts: 360Registered User Member
    Thanks PA-C. Like my earlier post, he might be in the running for the full tuition scholarship! We have a middle S (sophomore in college) in the sciences with similar stats to our 2 Ds, (exact rank, within one point on ACT and 10 pts on SAT 2, same course load and GPA) and his admission result was different but very good so it all worked out great.
